Stage & Time | TBD
Just like last year and the year before, we’re making it our mission to help you get acquainted with as many bands as we can from Bonnaroo‘s impressive 2014 lineup. We’ll start from the bottom and work our way up, paying special attention to the smaller and lesser known acts on this year’s bill. Keep reading for your Bonnaroo Band of the Day…
Last year, we personally saw the power of pop-tinged folk music when Mumford and Sons were forced to pull out of Bonnaroo last minute, leaving The Lumineers with the most packed Which Stage we’ve ever seen. Let’s just hope nothing happens to The Avett Brothers this year, or else we might have a repeat scenario from Vance Joy.
Vance Joy is the working moniker of James Keogh from Melbourne, Australia, who has seen unbelievably rapid success. After only releasing his first single “From Afar” in January of 2013 and the undeniable success of his song “Riptide”, Keogh has already signed a five album deal with Atlantic Records, which only furthers our feelings on pop tinged folk inspired music! If you are shaking your head wondering who the hell I’m talking about, have a listen to “Riptide” below, and I’m pretty sure you’ll say, “Oh yeah, I know that song”.
